So I'm pretty sure my room mate's cat ate an ambien off of my floor about an hour ago. He looks kinda tired..... but he is a lazy indoor cat, so I dunno?

I don't really like cats, but i'd feel bad if the little (well, big and fat) guy had any long term issues. If he actually did end up scarfing one down should I just let him sleep it off?

I'm not putting any money out of pocket for the thing, but if i can feed him something to neutralize it i may try that.

Ambien tastes pretty foul.

Then again, so does cat food, judging by the smell.

If true, you should take him to an emergency hospital immediately. Even Acetaminophen, for example, is extremely toxic to cats. This is potentially a life threatening event for that cat. Yes, I'm serious.

I was just going to post that, or call ANY vet for advice. Also call your roommate and let them know. . .I'm sure a sleeping pill intended for a full sized adult would have some negative effects on a cat, even a fat one

If that's what it was, he's already dead. Just moving around and not aware he's dead yet.

If you want to be nice, call your roommate and see what he/she says about it. A vet could probably make him puke it up.

Cats cannot "spit" something out, they toss things around in their mouth and it usually falls out. A dry pill with a wet tongue basically means it's getting swallowed because it won't fall. They rely on fantastic upchuck ability to get rid of items ingested that way.

Also, recreational prescription drugs are bad, mkay? The type of place with roommates and ambien on the floor seems like one step away from a felony stop and loss of firearms. The only people I know that have pills go missing randomly (in couch cushions, floor, etc.) are taking drugs relationally and mixing them with booze. Maybe clean up your act? and your apartment for that matter.

Sounds like you need to clean up your act and quit hanging around druggies After all, it's only one stop away from a felony and the loss of your firearms.

The cat isn't allowed in my room, except to look at the fishtank every once in awhile. I'm a young adult, and can't afford to live by myself for another couple years most likely. The ambien is mine, and i know i had dropped one or two last night, but had to get up early, so i didn't worry about it. I don't take it very often, unless I have to get up very early, and have to go to bed very early. Maybe a few times a month. No recreational use.....(how is falling asleep fun?!)

Not worried about the law, I live a very clean life..., but thanks.

Poison control said to see how he acts because it's not the CR or whatever, and it's been too long to have him spit it up since it dissolves within 20-30 mins. in the stomach.

He's still alive and doesn't seem too bad?

why do many assume that because a college kid has a Rx, and its a controlled substance, hes doing it recreationally? Things happen. Chill. I was prescribed percocet for a root canal and ended up washing them in the washing machine, lol. had them in my pocket incase i was in pain. it happens. i ended up finding one under my drivers seat 8 months later. threw it out.

One 10 Mg. ambein will lay out most 150 Lb persons, that cat ate the equivalent of a 150 Lb. person taking ten (100 Mg.) of zolpidem (assuming similar absorption/metabolism of the drug). that cat is probably dead by now.

A person can't overdose on ambien just by itself can he?

I wonder if a cat can? Maybe it will make him sleep for a long time.

You should take the cat to an animal hospital, and you shouldn't leave pill on the floor like a drug addict.

Yes, pretty easily. It is a sedative/hypnotic and like most others can cause CNS depression to the point of respiratory failure and death in the event of an overdose.

Here is a cat thread in GD; I opened this fully expecting to find a bunch of "shoot it" or "your not a man if you own/live with a cat" replies.

GD surprised me today.


OP, hope kitty is OK.
